Gísli Marteinn Baldursson, who will be the Eurovision commentator for RÚV, the Icelandic national broadcasting station, tells it isn’t clear what the consequences of the COVID-19 case will be for the group, or whether a recording of the group’s performance will be used in tomorrow night’s broadcast.

“I don’t know what will happen,” Gísli Marteinn states.

You can watch and listen to Iceland’s contribution, “Ten Years,” here . The song is about the ten-year-old relationship of Daði and his wife Árný, who is one of the group members.
